Cheesey Artichoke Dip 0 0 5 0

Who would have thought that this ol' standby dip recipe could be healthy?!?!

The secret to making this an energy boosting / 'feel good' dish is in the quality of the ingredients, here's a few examples: - Grass-fed, organic and full fat dairy contains exponentially more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than non-grass fed, which helps with the breakdown of adipose lipids (belly fat). - Artichokes help with bile production which emulsifies (breaks down) fat, making it easier to digest. - Then there's the antioxidant benefits of garlic and spinach and VOILA nutritious and soooo delicious!

NOTE: This wonderfully nutritious dip is very high in calories, so if weight gain is a concern... - try and stick to a 1 ounce (2 tablespoon) serving...

Directions

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat small casserole dish or cast iron pan with coconut oil or avocado oil.
